Am to fight Amir Khan or rematch Mayweather- Pacquiao says

After ten of thousands of boxing fans had lost the hope for Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao rematch fight, Pacquiao himself threw the boxing world for a loop by saying he’s in negotiations with Mayweather for a rematch.

Pacquiao announced that he wants to fight one more time before hanging up his gloves for good and pursuing a full-time career as a politician in his domicile country Philippines early next year, a timetable that seemed to make a rematch unlikely.

However, Pacquiao said that not only is the rematch possible, but confirmed talks are ongoing with Mayweather and one other fighter.

Pacquiao confirmed he is in negotiations with American Mayweather and Briton [Amir] Khan but said he had no preference over whom to fight … “I will battle anybody, anywhere,” he said. “I am going to fight probably before the election … The election is coming next year, May, and before that I will probably have one fight.”

“I think I’m ready (to retire). I’ve been in boxing for more than 20 years,” Pacquiao said in an interview with the ABS-CBN television network. “I will have to give up the other things that require my attention. If you are a senator, your focus should only be your job and your family.”

With any potential fight needing to happen before the elections in May and Mayweather in retirement and seemingly in no hurry to return to the ring, it seemed unlikely that a rematch could happen. However, if there was one thing that made the rematch still seem possible it was the money and how much each fighter would be leaving on the table if they couldn’t reach a deal on a rematch.
